Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
• Learners are encouraged to enjoy the process, ask questions, share ideas and their creations along the way.
• Learners are encouraged to personalize or modify their projects as they see fit to become fully self-expressed.
• Learners will understand how to use essential jewelry hardware and findings, including pliers, cutters, chains, jump rings, and clasps.
• Learners will think about what types of materials to upcycle to practice resourcefulness and the use of sustainable materials. 
I am a maker, teaching artist, and designer. For over ten years, I’ve worked with upcycled leather and textiles to create accessories for sale in my online shop and at art fairs. As a trained social-emotional arts facilitator, I teach jewelry-making skills in-person and online to tweens, teens, and adults at workshops and community programs to foster self-confidence and self-expression through creativity.

I encourage learners to use whatever materials are on hand and available. If you can purchase new materials, you can view some of the suggested materials for this class on my Amazon list: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1UNQBYP2HGUME?ref_=wl_share Suggested materials: • Chain nose pliers • Wire cutters • Open jump rings (4-6 mm) • Lobster clasps (around 10x5 mm) • Cable chain (around 2x3 mm) • Leather scrap pieces • Printer (for PDF template) • Tacky glue (e.g., UHU all purpose, E6000, Aileen's) or hot glue • Tape (scotch or light masking/painters) • Ballpoint pen and/or white gel pen (for dark leather) • Sharp scissors • Tape measure or ruler Many of these materials are available at your local craft store. You can also find leather to upcycle (from purses, jackets, skirts, etc.) at local thrift shops or in your closet! When selecting metal findings (chains, clasps, and jump rings), choose matching colors such as all bronze, silver, or gold.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be cutting leather by hand. Leaners may need a guardian's assistance with handling sharp scissors.
